FREQUENCY OF MORTALITY OF PATIENTS WITH ACUTE PANCREATITIS USING BEDSIDE INDEX FOR SEVERITY
Main Article Content
Objective: To determine the frequency of mortality of patients with Acute Pancreatitis having bedside index for severity
in acute pancreatitis (BISAP).
Material and Methods: This was a Cross sectional descriptive study, conducted at Department of Surgery of Khyber
Teaching Hospital, Peshawar-Pakistan, from January 2014 to June 2016 on patients after diagnosing the disease severity
of the acute pancreatitis and expected mortality of patients were calculated on bedside index for severity in acute
pancreatitis (BISAP) >3 and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences 20.
Results: In this study, 65 patients presenting with acute pancreatitis were observed, in which male to female ratio was
1.24:1. The study included age ranged from 16 up to 75 years. Average age was 52.85 years + 12.99 SD. Mortality
was observed in 51(78.46%) patients having acute pancreatitis by using BISAP score.
Conclusion: The BISAP score represents a simple way to accurately identify patients at risk of developing severe acute
pancreatitis within 24 hours of presentation in our setup. Its components are clinically relevant and easy to obtain. This
risk stratification capability can be utilized to improve clinical care
